I really wish Hasbro would get their distribution issues fixed. I've been trying to track this figure down for my daughter for 3 months with no luck. They're getting just enough out to feed the scalpers and clog the pegs with Poe's and resistance troopers. I've had this figure in my Amazon cart (for 7.99) only to have it sell out every time before I can complete check out. This is so freaking frustrating. If collectors can't get what their after, their a lot of unhappy colletors, but when kids who actually want to play with the toys can't get them its just depressing.
Fairly sure that's the 12 inch BB-8 they showed at Toy Fair:Sorry for the non-Rey post, but anyone else see this? Is this a pack-in, or a soon-to-be single-carded BB-8 ?
Copy that. There was no real description on Hasbro's website. Thanks.Fairly sure that's the 12 inch BB-8 they showed at Toy Fair:
Just checked and Han is the same. Hassk thug is $11.93 from Amazon too. Looks like Amazon is now just matching whatever the lowest third party seller has their price set at. This sucks. Can't get them in stores because of the scalpers and now the online stores are starting to scalp their own product.
It IS a 3rd party seller but FULFILLED by Amazon, so it's NOT AMAZON SCALPING. By being fulfilled by AMAZON, listings then are eligible for Prime benefits and free shipping w/ min. purchase as if it was sold directly from AMAZON.
...however, after posting above, i did look at more figs and it does seem unkar and han are 15.77 directly from amazon, so...who know what amazon is doing. Hopefully it's a typo error and if anyone wants to by direct from amazon can contact amazon via chat and tactfully inquire about the scalping prices.
I'm glad i got all i needed from amazon for MSRP and am done w/ TFA until Maz set (which is on amazon from a scalper for $120 + $20 s/h eta 6/30-- that's the kind of listings Amazon needs to terminate) and new TBS 4" hits.
5POA TFA figures are $14 equivalent in the UK.I hope this is an error, if Amazon is scalping like WM, I'll have to stop further purchases with them. Each time a frantic collector buys from scalpers, it sends the wrong message. We lost a bunch of collectors when figures hit $10, if a 5 POA line were to do the same, it would likely ruin any affordability associated with the line, which at $8 is already pushing it...
It does suck and I doubt its going to be back to normal anytime soon. They've sold through at least 60+ of Resistance Rey at the $16 price. Not a good sign for things to come, but I refuse to give in to scalper prices, especially when its the retailers doing it. Why would they lower the price when they sell like crazy at a much higher profit margin? I blame Hasbro for dropping the ball on getting figures out in decent quantities. Worst part is I don't even collect the 5POA garbage, but my 5 year old daughter wants this figure and I still haven't been able to find it at retail prices after 3 months.I really hope it's some kind of mistake or glitch...because this would really suck. I rely on Amazon for almost all of my collecting at this point and I ONLY buy from Amazon proper.
looks great. awesome work. I like the look of the frayed strap on her staff as well. great stuff
That figure is terrifying - on so many levels. Nightmare fuel.Anyone looking for a "Resistance Rey", I mean Hoth Leia with a Darth Vader lightsaber
Saw two Resistance Rey at north Lincoln Wal-Mart tonight. Looks like they finally restocked. They also had two Han and two Hassk.
